From signal representations to musical creation: a geometric approach

Speaker: Carmine Emanuele Cella (University of California, Berkeley)

Carmine Emanuele Cella, assistant professor in music and technology at CNMAT, will present work done in the last years in searching good signal representations that permit high-level manipulation of musical concepts. After the definition of a geometric approach to signal representation, the theory of sound-types and its application to music will be presented. Finally, recent research on assisted orchestration will be shown and some possible musical applications will be proposed, with connections to deep learning methods.

This is a joint seminar with the Composition Seminar in the School of Music.
